Temple High School's 2021 UIL One-Act Play

By Frank Winters

As a winter storm approaches, nine high school students find themselves summoned into a darkened theatre at midnight. None of them knows what they are doing there or for what reason each of them, specifically, has been asked to attend. Not until the tenth student arrives to ask them all for their advice. What happens next will test the strength of their character and the bonds of their friendship in ways they could never have imagined when the evening began and the storm rolled in.
